​Birmingham boss Clotet says interest will rise in Man Utd target Bellingham

Birmingham City boss Pep Clotet believes that interest in Jude Bellingham is set to increase.

The 16-year-old is a big target for Premier League clubs, including Manchester United.

The Red Devils were ready to sign him in January, but Bellingham wants to wait before deciding on his next team. Borussia Dortmund are also eyeing him.

"What I'm very happy about now is that Jude is here with us and all the players are here with us as well," Clotet told Sky Sports.

'We focus on that really, but I understand there's going to be more speculation when the games do come back.

"As a head coach, I don't deal with transfers, it's the club. But I can imagine the situation has all the clubs very worried about how to finish this season and what impact this season has into next season.

"That can change a lot of the future of the clubs. Possibly it's going to be a busy summer, possibly it's going to be less busy, we still don't know what impact it will have."
